Super luxe long sleeved collared shirt dress featuring exposed hip pockets, rounded hem and side vents.
A new favourite!
I adore this tunic, it's definitely one of my new faves. Fabric is lovely, fit is true to size. I'm pretty short so didn't have a problem with length (I wear it with over the knee boots or gladiators and it looks awesome), but I do wear really short bikeshorts underneath just cause it can be a bit short when you lift your arms.
Not long enough to be a dress
I'm a fan of the cozy/casual look, so this dress seemed perfect. However, when I got it, it really just looked like an oversized shirt with no pants. I'm all for pushing the envelope with clothing, but I couldn't wear this as a dress without feeling silly. Moreover, it was just unflattering, and the inside lining was kinda rough and not soft.
Perfect fit, perfect color, poor quality
I ordered the extra small merlot color on line. It arrived and fit perfectly but sadly, after wearing three times it developed a run right in front. i am sorry because I liked it so much. I have several similar free people pieces(same fabric) that have held up very well. I washed this following the instructions after noticing the run.

Cozy Velvet Shirt Dress
I love the feel of this!! I wear it as a tunic over jeans as well as long skirts! I cannot tell you how wonderful the feel is!! I now own two of these as when it went on sale I just had to have another one! AND now??? As I write this I may just have to buy another color! LOL I love that CP shades is part of the free people collection!
Gorgeous, but too short
Like many other reviewers have said, this item is too short to be worn by most as a dress. I am 5'5", and I wasted a lot of time trying to make this dress work -- because I loved the look of it and wanted to make it work. But it just looked wrong with all the tights, leggings and jeans I tried it with, and it looked absurdly short with bare legs. I felt like I was wearing a beautiful nightshirt & wouldn't dare wear it in public. Believe me. I tried, but it's going back.
I loved this dress since it first appeared online. I even added it to my Christmas Wish List. It arrived in time for Christmas. I was very thrilled and pictured all the places I would wear it. However, this dress is a disaster!!! I should have believed the other reviews. The whitish lining shows at the neck and sleeves. The material is skimpy, clinging and thin.It is more a tunic than a dress, and I am petite. The green color is pretty; the rest a mess. I so wanted to wear this for holiday events and in my profession officiating weddings. It is hard to find flowy velvet dresses to wear in the winter to weddings. This is going back, and I am deeply disappointed. Otherwise, I adore Free People. BohoLady
Shirt? Dress? Who cares, buy it!
Yep, this one is pretty short. Like most FP dresses you run the question of is this a dress or a shirt? Its true. I wore this number with a black seamless romper; which was the best idea ever! Who cares if its a little short, as long as you are comfortable with your undergarments... wear it! Also, I thigh high boot or over the knee sock looks amazing! Get this dress its super comfy!
I'm 5'1, 110 lbs, and loved how the small fit. The velvet is relatively thin (and very soft!) so that it drapes beautifully in a way that makes it more flattering than other oversized looks. The pockets are a great accent as well. I agree that it is a bit short: even though I am short I would be uncomfortable wearing this alone as a dress because of the side slits, but I do love it with sweater tights or regular tights! Perfect day-to-night piece for winter!
While it is a little shorter than I expected, I ordered a large and am happy with the fit. I think a medium would have fit my body fine but I wanted to make sure it was loose and slouchy! I love the golden colour and it looks fantastic!
Love it - Should be less expensive
Even though I love it and am keeping it, it really should be less than $218. I got it for less with the birthday code. For the price I would expect heavier fabric and a richer looking material. I'm 5'4" so the length works for me as either a dress or tunic. There is especially good length in the back. I have the cumin color which looks great. It's a super cool piece and looks excellent dressed up or down. That said, this is not a very dressy item. The slouchy pockets and oversized fit definitely make it more casual. This gets 4 stars for style but should get 3 stars for fabric quality at best.
